8 Resources for New and Expecting Parents in Columbus Ohio

8 Resources for New and Expecting Parents in Columbus Ohio


As a mother to an almost two-year-old, I remember what it felt like trying to find the best, local resources for new parents. Even before my daughter was born I was looking all over the internet at OB doctors, baby boutiques and more! Now that I’m a mom and also a newborn photographer, I often talk with my clients during their session about my favorite businesses that cater to new parents! I thought it would be an awesome idea to have it all written down so new and expecting moms and dads can find the best resources within Central Ohio.

Here are my top 8 resources for new and expecting parents in Columbus Ohio!

  1. Never Grow Up Boutique

    Never Grow Up Boutique is a family owned and operated business store front located in Central Ohio - our hometown of Grove City, Ohio to be exact. (Yes, you can shop online, too!)

    They bring baby, toddler & parenting products LOCAL for the modern, natural family - cloth diapers, babywearing gear, breastfeeding support products, toys, tablewear, clothing and more! They proudly stock products that are eco-friendly, US safety tested & compliant, from companies that stand by shared values of sustainability and ethical manufacturing practices. They love their community of like-minded business and partner with many of them to also stock hand-made, local made, small batch and/or “mom-treprenuer” products, too! As a small business ourselves, we love to support other small businesses!

  2. Sarah Cropper Photography

    Scheduled when your baby is 5-14 days old, Sarah offers newborn photography in her Grove City, Ohio studio or lifestyle newborn photography in your home throughout Central Ohio . Focusing on timeless imagery and natural posing, she will capture such a precious, fleeting time in your family's life. She has experience posing using only the most flattering angles and the highest safety measures. She also helps you choose the right outfits for your family. She uses mostly white and neutral colors and minimal props to allow your images to stand the test of time. Sarah takes a mix of lifestyle and naturally posed portraits to fill your gallery with beautiful photos to keep forever.

  3. Ohio Baby Co.

    They help guide parents through pregnancy and the first year+ after the birth of their baby.  That can be different for each family, but generally it includes anything from providing their childbirth prep and education, new born care & breastfeeding classes or hosting them at one of their many mom friendly events!

    Once the family is home with baby, we provide loving in-home care for the whole family. Cooking, light house keeping, infant care, errands, and even overnight visits (while parents sleep the night away!).  Some moms like to have a couple consultation visits, where they help the family discover their short and long term parenting goals (no goal is too small or too large), and they give them the tools and plans to make that happen!  Other families utilize their services for the entire first year of baby's life!!

    By trade they are postpartum doulas, but they have been called night nanny, overnight hero, mom fairy, and "moms secret weapon."

  4. Columbus Placenta

    Columbus Placenta Encapsulation is the only provider in Central Ohio with a dedicated workspace, following the highest standards in safety and sanitation protocols and certified by the Association of Placenta Preparation Arts (APPA), the industry gold standard.

    You can trust that your placenta is in good hands. You'll know there is zero risk of cross-contamination. You'll know the person who encapsulates your placenta is certified in safe food handling protocols. You'll know that they're certified in blood-borne pathogen prevention protocols.

  6. Solis Mammography

    At Solis Mammography, they’ve taken the stress and anxiety out of the traditional mammogram experience by providing you with peace of mind at every stage of the process. They believe your experience with them starts the moment you schedule your appointment and doesn’t end until you receive your results. They’re dedicated to making every step as easy, comfortable, accurate and convenient as possible.

    They know that many women have experienced discomfort during a mammogram, which can stand in the way of building healthy breast care habits through annual screenings. That’s why they’ve introduced SmartCurve in all their centers. Its curved design mirrors the shape of a woman’s breast to distribute pressure more evenly to reduce pinching and discomfort at the chest wall. And, it’s fully integrated with 3D mammography, their state-of-the-art screening technology, which is the best screening tool available today. The end result is greater accuracy, improved comfort and a superior experience.
